What Will You Create?


 

 

We wanted to paint our dining room blue. 
There were so many choices, we didn't know what to do. 
We gathered paint swatches and samples to test;
Chose "Cool Jazz Blue" and made crafts with the rest.

Even more fun is to have children rename the color samples.  The children will amaze you with their creativity.  Enrich the activity with a discussion about the connection between color and emotion. Brainstorm phrases that use colors to describe feelings such as:  red as a beet, green with envy, feeling blue, and tickled pink.

                        How would you rename the following samples?  It's hard to beat limolicious.
